Named affectionately after executive chef Drake Leonards’ South Louisiana hometown, Eunice offers a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu inspired by the flavors of his childhood.

The seasonally-inspired menus marry European influences with the ingredients and foodways of the Gulf Coast. Enjoy the dining experience inside at the bar, at a table along the floor to ceiling windows, or outside on our patio.

We offer happy hour every day from 3 pm to 6 pm including 75 cent oysters, half off snacks, beer, specialty cocktails, and house wines by the glass.

Parking was a bit of a challenge. That could definitely be made easier. However, the food, the ambience and just the overall look of the restaurant was worth it! So glad we went. We will definitely be back!

What a gem! We had our first visit to Eunice recently and were blown away by the ambience, the friendly staff, clever cocktails, and AMAZING food! I would recommend to go with friends so you can try as much of the menu as possible. It is updated daily with fresh fish, and they update the menu regularly. Highly recommend!

The menu is so varied and the dishes innovative. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. It was busy but the waitstaff and management were on top of everything. The cocktails were so good. I had the sparkling rosé and husband had the pecan bourbon. His was poured in a highball glass with a 2” ish cube of ice, as is the fashion right now. He said it didn’t melt much and so didn’t dilute the bourbon. We have the cornbread appetizer, I had the shrimp and grits, and he had salad with fried oysters. Everything was perfect including the bread pudding for dessert. I wish I could eat here regularly!

We had a wonderful time! The menu always wows, and this time was no exception. We started with oysters on the half shell and worked our way thru Duck gumbo and shrimp and grits. Our server, Sarah, is our favorite, her wine recommendations are always spot on. Thank you for a great Valentiine Brunch/Linner!! K and B

Lovely ambiance, we were able to grab drinks before our reservation. Which was nice. The service was a bit inconsistent. It made it a bit difficult attempting to order, we were eventually taken care of after being acknowledged but never helped.

Any who, drinks were amazing. I asked the bartender for a recommendation, which was great. Our starter dish was amazing. We had the Dan Dan Shrimp. Great choice very flavorful. Our main course was our design Grilled Ribeye with potatoes and added crab meat. Delicious as well. Loved the environment and we had a great time celebrating our love.

We had Anniversary/Valentine's Day dinner and were absolutely pleased with the service and food. Each item was delicious and the cocktails were great as well. We ordered Dan Dan shrimp, hand pulled burrata and biscuits, gumbo, shrimp and grits, and crawfish etoufee. The bread pudding was outstanding! Our server was appropriately attentive and friendly. We'll definitely be back!

It was a great day experience overall, first time going there and I would suggest making a reservation because this place is busy. When I walked in with my girlfriend the people and ambience make it out stand, I would say the average age of people there was between late twenties and forties, everyone looked put together and nice. Menu has great options and full of flavor, shrimp and grits recommended. Want a place that offers great ambience and great service this is the place for a nice dinner and dating.

By far my favorite restaurant in Houston right now. I've never tried anything bad here. Drinks and food are always pushing your taste buds. Husband loves the bourbon selection. Plus, the staff goes out of their way to add to the experience - I feel like a rock star every time I go. Fried oysters and quail are a must!

The meal was excellent--rating should be 4 1/2 stars. Deducted points as I thought the meal was a bit too rich (though delicious). We had roasted oysters (would have been better with only oysters...did not need the crab and shrimp), cornbread skillet (fantastic), sea bass (fabulous), roast chicken (wonderful, particularly the vegetables, but a bit too rich) and split a lemon tart.
Service was quite good, attentive but not intrusive.
We will be back. Looking forward to the spring menu full of fresh veggies and the fantastic bespoke salad.
